energy secretary, steven chu, has now been on record three times stating it's not policy of his department to help lower gas prices. do you agree with secretary chu that this is not the job of the energy department? obama: the most important thing we can do is to make sure we control our own energy. so here's what i've done since i've been president. we have increased oil production to the highest levels in 16 years. natural gas production is the highest it's been in decades. we have seen increases in coal production and coal employment. but what i've also said is we can't just produce traditional source of energy. we've also got to look to the future. that's why we doubled fuel efficiency standards on cars. that means that in the middle of the next decade, any car you buy, you're going to end up going twice as far on a gallon of gas. that's why we doubled clean -- clean energy production like wind and solar and biofuels. and all these things have contributed to us lowering our oil imports to the lowest levels in 16 years. now, i want to build on that. and that means, yes, we st

, and it will be asked by steven koosmann. mr. koosmann, where are you, sir? you're right behind me as well. there we go. >> right next to the last. >> it seems that when we hear about issues of this campaign, it's usually medicare, social security or prescription drugs. as a college professor, i hear a lot of apathy amongst young people who feel that there are no issues directed to them. and they don't plan to vote. how do you address that? >> we've got to change it. i spend a good deal of time talking to young people, and in my standard speech out there on the stump i usually end my speech by saying, i want to ask you for something and i want to direct it especially to the young people in the audience. and i want to tell you what i tell them. sometimes people who are very idealistic and have great dreams, as young people do, are apt to stay at arm's length from the political process because they think their good hearts might be brittle, and if they invest their hopes and allow themselves to believe, then they're gonna be let down and disappointed. but thank goodness we've always had enough people who
on the u.s. consulate in libya. this resulted of the death ambassador chris stevens. he made multiple attempts to get more security and these efforts went unheeded. do believe the obama administration mishandled the situation leading up to and in the aftermath of the attack? what could have been done better and should be done better going forward? >> it was absolutely mishandled. to learn better that the cries of help is unacceptable. as a member of the armed services committee, we will conduct oversight hearings and make sure our ambassadors and all of the consulate personnel are protected. we have to make sure they have what they need. we need to make sure they have the resources, the protection they need. i do not believe there is any explanation other than it was not handled properly. i believe congress and its oversight capacity is to make sure this never happens again. it was a tragedy that could have been prevented. it was the anniversary of 9/11 and we should have been on heightened security. >> ladies and gentlemen, finally, tonight, we agree. president obama did a terrible j
